Fieldwork and sampling at Loewe Massif-Amery Oasis
Entry ID: ASAC_1071_Loewe


Summary
Abstract: At Loewe Massif and Amery Oasis, samples were taken;
- for sediment analysis (XRF geochemistry and grain size)
- for geochronology (cosmogenic isotope analysis).

The custodian for these samples is Dr Damian Gore, Macquarie University.

Lake sediment samples were taken from Lake Terrasovoje, Radok Lake and Beaver Lake. The custodian for these lacustrine samples is Dr Martin Melles, Leipzig University.

The dataset also includes weather/meteorological observations.

Further work in project 1071 was also completed as part of PCMEGA.

Quality
Sampling sites were x-y-z Garmin 45 GPS located, altitude cross-checked with a Kestrel altimeter and occasionally a second GPS. Sampling sites were located on an OziExplorer base map.
